Staff

Jennifer Smith Administrative Assistant
Jen has been with Vancouver Island Counselling since 2003. Her pleasant and calming approach creates warm and trusting relationships. Jen produces our highly regarded and very well-received monthly “Choices” newsletter that brings our clients valuable information on a wide range of health and wellness matters (an archive is on this website). Jen lends her ongoing creativity to the design and maintenance of the Vancouver Island Counselling website and can be counted on for detailed, precise and timely statistical reports for the organizations we serve. She is a valuable member of our team and frequently goes “beyond the call of duty” to provide clients with an immediate and caring response to their needs.

April presents the financials to our board members as well as assisting with the budget projections from year to year. In addition to organizing the finances, April is a valued support for Vancouver Island Counselling staff and provides us with her good guidance in the area of office management and appointment scheduling. You may also hear April’s warm, friendly voice when you call or come in. She enjoys this opportunity to greet and share her caring and compassionate nature to our clients.
